Crate Training: Puppy Training Made Easy. How To Crate Train Your Puppy.

Get Your FREE E-Book That Reveals How to Toilet Train Your Puppy Quickly and Stop Biting and Chewing FAST!

Getting a puppy is really exciting, they bring such a happy, vibrant and fun energy into the home, even people who don’t like dogs very much find it hard to resist a lovely little puppy.

Puppies can also bring chaos into a house. Getting it right from the start and training your puppy correctly is crucial in order for your puppy to grow into a happy, fun-loving and obedient dog.

During this video you’ll learn step-by-step how to crate train your puppy easily and effortlessly. I show you exactly how to do it right, why doing repetitions is the key to success, how long to leave your puppy in the crate when doing the repetitions and essentially how to associate to your puppy that the crate is a really good place for them to be.

Some individuals think that crate training is wrong. I understand why some people may think this as I too questioned this method when we got our 2, 8 week male Parson Terrier littermates. My doubts were soon shattered when I saw how much they loved their crate and realized that most dogs love dens, they love the safe haven they provide and a place to call their own. A crate offers the perfect solution to creating a den for your dog.

Crate training is an essential ingredient to your puppy training success as it works with behaviours such as:

• Toilet/Potty Training
• Chewing
• Biting
• Separation Anxiety

There are 2 main questions people ask me when buying a crate:

1) How big should the crate be?
2) What type of crate should I get?

Here’s the answers:

1) How big should the crate be?

When choosing a crate it needs to big enough for your dog to be able to stand up, turn around and lie down. Puppies tend to avoid soiling where they sleep so it’s important not to get a crate that is too big as this will potentially create a sleeping area and a toileting place for your puppy.

2) What type of crate should I get?

There are a range of different styles for you to choose from:

• Wire Crates
• Plastic Crates
• Soft-sided Crates
• Wooden Crates
• Aluminium Crates

There are pros and cons to each type, to find out what they are click on the links below:

    Yes, you’re right if you go to him when he is making a noise he will associate that when he does that you come. I suggest giving him short periods in the crate during the day whilst you are in another room so he gets used to being on his own and to try a night light during the night in case it’s the darkness he is adjusting to. I wish you all the very best.

  2. Crystal Saete says:

    I did this and it works great!

  3. Sharon Bolt - Good Dogs! says:

    The best time for you to do the crate training is when you get home from work or when you have a day off rather than wait for night time/bed time. If 30 seconds is too long make it a shorter time and build it up gradually – remember to use treats and to stay calm – lots of repetition and consistency is the key to success. I wish you all the very best 🙂

  4. Sharon Bolt - Good Dogs! says:

    If you’re not able to use puppy treats then use a toy or something he really likes to bring him in and out of the crate.

  5. Sharon Bolt - Good Dogs! says:

    @MsZoraZ That’s great you like my video – thank you 🙂

    The type of crate will be a personal preference (for both humans and dogs) – I personally like the wire type like the one in the video. It’s best to test where to place the crate – where he/she can see is usually good unless it creates a stressful reaction in them such as something passing a window etc. Test when you are home so you feel confident that he/she is OK when you are out 🙂

  6. Sharon Bolt - Good Dogs! says:

    Yes, she’s gorgeous and is a Jack Russell puppy 🙂

    I just got a 3month old cocker spaniel,thats not potty train yet. both my husband an i work the overnights. when we come home after our 10 hr shifts. he’s all wet with urine and he is tearing up his sheepskin dog rug that i have in the crate. Should i have him eat his last dinner at 6pm till we come home and should i just take out the rug out of his crate till he getts over his teething thing? please someone helllllllllllllllppppppppppppppppppp?

  9. strangelittlebeing says:

    Not a fan of crate-training, but you are definately showing people the right way to crate-train. The issue isn’t so much with the crate but with the weakness of some owners in using the crate because they are too lazy to train their puppy, or are angry with accidents, hence creating a negative association. But you are right-on with this video, it’s all about positive association and I commend you for such principles! Just wish more owners understood this.

  10. Steve Fredd says:

    But this dog is already trained for the crate. A better video would be a puppy who is new at the experience.

  11. John Kramer says:

    This is really the best way to crate train…worked great with my stubborn bulldog…he now loves his crate! Thanks for posting

  12. Mike says:

    What’s the proper crate size I should get for a yorkie? I have a crate that is 18” long by 13” wide from a friend who gave me the crate. Will this size work or should I get a bigger crate?

  13. margaret kelly says:

    This is the only way to train your dog.  I lost my cocker two years ago (she was 13 when she died) and am in the process of getting another dog.  I forgot how to crate train.  I remembered I only had to crate train for three months and after my dog was potty trained I sold the crate.  My aunt didn’t believe in crate training and her dog wasn’t potty trained until a year later.  My puppy also loved the crate.  I mostly used the crate at night and when I heard my dog whine, I knew she had to go (I think I had to get up two to three times during the night to bring her out…Oh, I am not looking forward to that).  This was a great video.  I will be following this and thanks for sharing!

    Great video Sharon!

  15. Flindo BK says:

    this puppy is familiar with crate already. I try to introduce my puppy , it has been 3 days, but he is not familiar yet, still afraid even to put his front legs inside..

    • Chris Moore says:

      Will you pay for our dog to have a pet sitter? Or would you rather judge us for being “cruel?”

    • Gibbon says:

      Chris Moore
      Never seen crates in Finland so it’s new and weird for me (Because using crates inside building is strictly illegal in Finland). My dogs are happy and they live outside and they can hear distant barks and smell if there is rabbit nearby. Nothing could be better, they are happiest dogs on earth.

    • Chris Moore says:

      How very myopic of you. Oh, if we could all just live on enough land to have our dogs run free! Oh, wait, let me guess: You will probably argue that if someone can’t keep a dog in the Utopian conditions that your magical dogs are living in, then they shouldn’t have a dog at all, right?

      Just because crate training is illegal in Finland, and just because you have a certain set of beliefs doesn’t mean that all dogs who live in differently than yours are suffering or being treated cruelly, or even unhappy.

      There are many people who would convincingly argue that making your dogs live outdoors year-round in Finland would be considered cruelty.

    My Jack Russel Puppie got out of a crate while i was gone even tho it was locked we came home and saw her at the window when we got in the crate was flipped over but still locked

    • IZIVI.Dance.Candiz says:

      That’s creepy…….. Or he was just smart and locked it again after so it seemed like he did nothing 😂😂

    • jeremy humby says:

      +Em Krause Good luck with Jack Russ , I had 2 of them and it was a like pull up gate, and he found out how to open it with his nose. >_> got to the point where he even did it in front of us

    Hey we got a 3/4 Golden Retriever she is 10 weeks 6 days old today and I’d train her with treats however the man we got her of said not to as it could give her an upset tummy. Do u think at the age she is now can we introduce her to treats as a reward???

    • IZIVI.Dance.Candiz says:

      Why do you have 3 fourths of a dog!!!!!!

      Lol I’m kidding but what did you mean😂😂😂

    • Serena Mull says:
